The Last Splash Mountain in the United States Closes Forever Tomorrow

Splash Mountain, located inside Disneyland Resort, will officially close tomorrow. It will be rethemed to Tiana’s Bayou Adventure, which follows a similar path to WDW’s Splash Mountain, which closed earlier this year.

Disney World closed its version of Splash Mountain in January and is currently undergoing massive retheming, changing the entire look of the once-iconic attraction.

The ride has experienced some major controversy, which led to the eventual closure of the WDW location and now the Disneyland location, with one remaining place left open at the Tokyo Disneyland Resort in Japan.

The crowds from the Disneyland Resort hotels were also no joke, as seen in the photo above. Folks who stayed on Disney property could enter the Park at least 30 minutes before it opened to the general public, giving them a higher chance of getting to ride the attraction one last time before the wait times reached the triple digits.
